Environmental awareness will help promote the market growth

The awareness regarding vehicle CO2 emissions and associated harmful environmental impacts is increasing all over the world. Various countries are formulating policies and regulatory guidelines to curb these emissions.
 

For instance, European Union has specified guidelines and set targets for automotive manufacturers to control CO2 emissions of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles by 2030. Hefty fines will be assigned to the manufacturers who will fail to comply with these regulations. Such trends will compel automotive manufacturers to use the polyphthalamide resins in automotive manufacturing thereby triggering the polyphthalamide resin market trends over the next few years.
 

Availability of other engineered plastics will pose challenge

Polymer industry is characterized by research & development and various products are being introduced from time to time. These products have improved operation capability over its predecessors and overcome the functional deficiencies of existing variants. Polyphthalamides face similar level of threat due to availability of substitute materials.
 

These substitutes have better temperature adaptability, superior toughness and improves moisture absorption characteristics. This will in turn negatively influence the polyphthalamide resin market growth between 2019 to 2026.
